Buttery Cooked Carrots

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2013
I know this is really simple but sometimes I forget I can kick my veggies up a notch. I've used regular sized carrots before, which tend to be a little bitter on their own, and they turned out really delicious. I add a pinch of salt but other than that these are perfect.

Best Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2013
This is my go-to rice side dish for Mexican meals. I've never changed a thing and everyone loves it.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2013
Super moist and delicious cakes! I love the sour cream in the frosting! NOTE: Be really careful to not over-mix. I did once time, not thinking it would be a big deal, and they turned out light & fluffy instead of dense and rich. Mix as little as you can get away with, it makes a big difference.

Apple Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2013
Once I make this bread I can't stay out of it. I will never look for another apple bread recipe ever again. It usually takes 3 small to medium apples to yield 1 cup. NOTE: I increased the salt to 1 1/2 tsp. I know it doesn't seem like much of a difference but I can tell and I like it better.

Coconut Cake III

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2013
I get rave reviews when I make this cake. It's really moist and sweet. I kind of feel like I'm 'cheating' by using a cake mix, but because of that simplicity my 11 year old daughter is able to make it completely on her own. My husband is constantly asking her to make it.

Oven BBQ Chicken Drumsticks

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2013
I generally don't work with bone-in chicken pieces because I'm paranoid about it being cooked thoroughly, but drumsticks were on sale and I'm on a grocery budget. This was fool-proof and delicious! I'm careful with my 5 star ratings but this one deserves it. NOTE: I doubled the recipe and wasn't thinking logically and also doubled the sauce. It ended up being way too much sauce, duh. So far I've made these twice and the amt. of sauce is plenty even when the chicken is doubled.

Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2013
I had to bake this about 15 min. longer for some reason, but it turned out delicious and was gone in less than 24 hours. It makes a great breakfast!

Slow Cooker Taco Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2013
Family LOVED this. It's kind of like chili, but not exactly. I didn't change anything but next time I'll add some other Mexican-style ingredients. It was yummy with cornbread :)

Magnificent Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2013
Yummo! I was looking for a basic macaroni salad because mine always end up d-u-l-l. The celery seed and rice vinegar definitely do the trick. I used shells instead of macaroni, but only because the store was out, and adjusted the mustard to suit my family's taste preferences. Other than that I followed it exactly (I don't like to leave reviews for recipes that I altered.) This will be my go-to side dish for summer for sure. Thanks for sharing it!

Apple Strudel Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2012
These are not just the best apple muffins I've ever made, they are the best MUFFINS I've ever made. I know the recipe is so simple, but everything comes together so deliciously. One little tip that I always do when I make something with a strudel top, I lightly mist the cupcake tin before I put the liners in, that way any sugary overspill doesn't stick like the dickens.

Apple-Cheddar Tossed Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
I served this last night and every single one of my guests went nuts over it. I barely got a serving myself, lol! I didn't use all the dressing, just tossed enough in till it looked right for my taste. I ended up sending the rest of the dressing home with one my friends who reacted as though I just gave her a Christmas gift.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
Very good! I didn't change anything and it turned out moist and flavorful. I've never made banana bread with brown sugar... it's great!

Cake Mixes from Scratch and Variations

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
I'm on the search for a recipe to replace the store mixes I run to, and this one isn't cutting it. I whipped it for several minutes but it was still too dense for my liking and wasn't very sweet. I might give it one more try with oil instead of shortening, as one reviewer suggested.

Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
I swore I'd NEVER stray from my usual cream cheese sugar cookie recipe, but I wanted cookies and had no cream cheese... so I whipped these up. DELIGHTFUL! I didn't change a single thing. I made cutouts and they held their shape perfectly. I think this has to be the best sugar cookie recipe out there. Thank you so much!

Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
I hope you're sitting down... my husband AND kids went nuts over this. It's perfect as is. I saw a couple people complain that it's bland... I wonder if they are using a premade crust. NEVER, use a premade crust for anything. They're just terrible. It's very simple to make a good crust from scratch.

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
My husband asks for these all the time. So simple but so fabulous! One tip... the dough seems to dry out really fast, and the drier the dough, the tougher the cookies are after they're baked. I solved that problem by storing the dough in an airtight container between batches. I take a damp cloth or paper towel and place it on top before I seal it up. Works like a charm.

Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
I have tried SO many baked nugget recipes over the years and none of them have been good enough to eat twice, so I didn't have high expectations here. I'm so glad I gave them a try! These are so, so good. Can't wait to make them again :) I dipped these into NANCI RENN's 'Honey Mustard Sauce'.
